Per Gessle – Substitute lyrics

She says what?
She doesn't like your new haircut?
Way too long in the back? - it's alright!
She comes and goes
She doesn't like your faded clothes
Hey you're sleazier than most but it's alright!
She can still change her mind
And stay the night
Stay the night

You're a substitute for the real deal
A substitute for the real deal
That she wants so bad
She wants so bad

She says so
She doesn't like your rock'n roll
Cos it makes her feel old but it's alright
She comes and goes
She doesn't like your fading clothes
You look cheaper than most but it's alright!
She can still change her mind
And stay the night
Stay the night

You're a substitute for the real deal
A substitute for the real deal
That she wants so bad
She wants so bad

You killed an elephant to find an ant
You made a point that came and went
You're a substitute for the real deal
Such a substitute for the real deal
